less by government regulation than <by xyz>
so A, B are out.
C is wordy and awkward
D than by ending a period sounds awkward.

E is the best

is by.. than by ... is idiomatic

Leaves us with C, D, E.

C is wordy

Now its between D & E..

less by and ending are not parallel .. hence E is a better option

E for me

is it B? I think if we select an answer starting with 'by', it means a person can end the period of agriculture productivity. hence, if we select the answer B, it should work fine. let me know if it is B.

Progressive! E changes the meaning.

Between C and D, I choose C.
D: "by ending period of" is not parallel with by government regulation.
We need a Noun after BY.
